[QUOTE=AnastasiaC]The sad part of all the reproductive technology is the price and most insurances do not cover…so when we should be freezing our eggs, ect, we can’t because of cost. DH brought up the topic recently…would you have your teenage kids do this?? Ideally this is when everything is healthiest. DH includes males in this since he had cancer and had he frozen any before the cancer, we may have had a better chance at children. Interesting…glad that reproductive technology is getting more media attention.[/QUOTE]
Yeah, that’s a good point. I know my wife and I would have had a tricky time raising the funds to do an egg retrieval and freeze while we were in college, but then again, our fertility problems came around the age of 25 after a nasty abdominal surgery. I think a lot of people who are setting off on careers at the age of 30 would certainly have the cash for this kind of thing.
If I have a daughter one day, I would gladly front her the cash to have her eggs frozen so that she’ll have “reproductive insurance,” so to speak.
